Some Fries With Your Stupid?

(H/T: Scissorhead D-Cap)

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie has the origin story about the Golden Calf statue at QPAC last weekend (strange emboldening theirs):

ABOUT THAT TRUMP STATUE — Over the weekend we told you that one of the stars of CPAC — that enormous statue of Trump — was made in Mexico. Well, it turns out there’s more to the story. Artist TOMMY ZEGAN had told Playbook he hand-crafted the 200-pound, chrome-painted fiberglass statue with the help of three men in Rosarito, Mexico, where he lives as an American expat. He said he then shipped it to Florida and transported it to CPAC in a U-Haul.

But one of Zegan’s business partners, JOSE MAURICIO MENDOZA,contacted us Tuesday to say that Zegan omitted a major part of the supply chain. While Zegan is based in Mexico, the piece was manufactured at the Shijiazhuang D & Z Sculpture Co. factory in China. “Everything is made in China,” Mendoza told Playbook. “I want to be straight, because if I’m going to sell these statues, they have to be true.” Mendoza dismissed Zegan’s claims that he’s the creative mind behind the sculpture, showing us two Trump bobbleheads that were the inspiration for the statue. “I was the architect of this,” Mendoza said. Zegan’s name was used, Mendoza added, because “no one is going to buy ‘Jose’ stuff, at least not a Donald Trump statue.” As for Zegan, he admitted to Playbook that he left out the true origin of the statue’s journey.

So you got that: A false idol, made in China, painted in Mexico, and U-hauled to Floriduh. It’s about as perfect a symbol of Lord Damp Nut’s America First grift as you can find.

    It’s just unbelievable that this story is true. Seriously- if you WANTED to make up an origin story that simply and pointedly underscores the rank hypocrisy of the GOP, you couldn’t have done a better job.

    Nicely done. Something about the golden calf reinventing itself as the golden ass. But have faith all ye scissorsheads, from the looks of it the legal entanglements will take his gold away, and then hand him his ass…

    I’m puzzled by the statue itself. Trump would hate it. It’s short, squat, he’s wearing Rocky-style boxer shorts and flipflops while holding some kind of star on the end. If anything, it was an insult. But the CPAC crowd couldn’t wait to take their selfies with it.

    Trump would love a gold plated statue, for sure, but he would be taller, thinner, with more hair and shiny shoes. And a long tie.

    …with the credit for making it stolen from a minority by a white guy.

    And Eiron waves drunkenly at the bartender “Hit me again, barkeep!” she slurred….

    If people who are stupid don’t know they’re stupid then logically speaking people who have no self-awareness aren’t aware that they have no self-awareness.
